The title of this exhibition (from Paul Weller’s That’s Entertainment (1981) exemplifies the oneiric everyday that each of these three artists contemplates so differently.

About

Susie Hamilton’s lets us, briefly and quickly, into moments of the consciousness of a lone girl on a hen-night or a lonely shopper morphing into the very freezer over which she is bent to buy her frozen food … with frozen emotions. 

Roxy Walsh combines different registers of language and pictorial idioms. Hers are the marks of someone who is present in the living, artistic, creative moment but whose poetic and lyrical impulses hint at artistic possibilities and alternatives elsewhere.

Persi Darukhanawala’s work is altogether more conceptual, psychological. Its arresting minimality engages the viewer by clearing away the noise of everyday myths and incognito sentimentality.

The paintings of these three artists might come from different places, but they join in dialogue and polylogue. It is the viewer who brings them into the real world with her/his eyes, mind, heart and, above all, humanity.
